Theres a completely blue VL V8 Calais wagon up here somewhere. Last time I saw it, it had $19,000 on it! Beautiful car though. Better than new.

Sorry it's long gone now. I kept going back for a look and then it was gone. Yard is under new ownership now too. It's driving around here somewhere.

They arent too hard Jaze, Im sure I had some lying around to fit but I cant find them. I will let you have them if I can.

Basically you have to pull the back part of the seat out, remove the material and weld a couple of brackets onto the actual seat. Most interior joints can do it for less then $200 or you can try yourself, just get the brackets out of a calais sedan rear seat.

I was going to try and fit a calais rear seat (the back part) to that wagon, cos it has a middle arm rest thing. But just didnt bother.

Two more up, both V8's. One red that I spotted a year ago but never got the numbers and a blue one that was written off a while back.

Thanks Nick, for both of them. Sorry I didn't get back to you.

Your first one was new to the list and I rang him to get details.
The second one was listed in the Sydney Trading Post last month so it looks like he's having a hard time selling that one too.

V8 wagons everywhere in the last three months.

Theres a bloke in Dandy somewhere who's got 2 Calais Wagons, 1 blue n/a 6 and a blue V8 from memory. He had so much VL sh** it wasn't funny. There were also 3 other calais and an exec there as well, all owned by him.
